Second Batch - Update
Josh 2004 Happy
I recently mismeasured and had a pH12 soap that was super crumbly. I also had a KOH soap with too much water. I ended up rebatching them both together with enough extra oil to bring the pH down to 10. It's decent enough soap, but it's still so soft... PARTLY BECAUSE I ADDED MORE WATER!

I tried baking it at 170 in an open oven on on a steel jellyroll pan for several hours. It dried out some, but also it expanded 25%, which ended up glopping inside the oven and burning.


If it doesn't firm up substantially after cooling, I'm seriously thinking about thinning it for use as pump soap. There's too much EO in there to toss it.
